Last week, China's first "sky train" completed its inaugural test run on a portion of controlled track in Chengdu. The new trains can hold over 200 passengers and travel at speeds of up to 60 km/h. Testing is currently ongoing on a track that will eventually reach a length of 1.25 kilometers.

In September, China became just the third country to "master" this kind of technology, after Germany and Japan, when its first sky train rolled off the assembly line in Nanjing -- after they spent just 4 months designing and completing it. However, this train does have something that makes it different from the rest of the world's suspension railways -- it looks like a panda!
